Voiced ゚ Hiragana ゙
皆さんこんにちは~ ( Hello Everyone) Going back to the basics today, well kind of going back to the basics. Remember these: か、さ、た、は? When you add either a 濁点 [だくてん] = ( ゙ )or a 半濁点 [はんだくてん] = ( ゚ ) the sound of those Hiragana characters change to a different voiced or muddied sound. -This only pertains to the Hiragana listed on the above chart- So let's say we add a 濁点 ( ゙ ) to those basic Hiragana consonants: か - when added a ( ゙ ) changes into: が as in Gaga さ- when added a ( ゙ ) changes into: ざ as in Zah た - when added a ( ゙ ) changes into: だ as in Dah は - when added a ( ゙ ) changes into: ば as in Bah 半濁点 ( ゚ ) is only used on the「はひふへほ」Hiragana. So let's say we add a 半濁点 ( ゚ ) to the「はひふへほ」Hiragana: は | when added a ( ゚ ) changes into : ぱ as in Pah ひ | when added a ( ゚ ) changes into : ぴ as in Pee ふ | when added a ( ゚ ) changes into : ぷ as in Poo へ | when added a ( ゚ ) changes into : ぺ as in Penny ほ | when added a ( ゚ ) changes into : ぽ as in Poll So if we follow the chart above it shows: G| The か きくけ こ 's " K " at the beginning is replaced by a "G" Z | The さしすせそ's "S" at the beginning is replaced by a "Z" except for し D | The たちつてと's "T" at the beginning is replaced by a " D" except for ち B | The はひふへほ with a 濁点 ( ゙ ) in the front is replaced by a "B" at the beginning. P | The はひふへほ with a 半濁点 ( ゚ ) in the front is replaced by a "P" at the beginning. * Both し and ち are replaced by a "J" し | when added a ( ゙ ) changes into じ as in G ち | when added a ( ゙ ) sounds exactly the same as じ Some stuff you guys can practice/ use! ありがとございます : Thank you! ( polite; usually used towards elders, higher class, your boss and strangers) ありがとう: Thank you! Thanks! ( To be used mostly towards really close friends/ family.) がい (n.) : Injury, Harm, or Damage だいがく「大学」(n.): Post-secondary education ( college, university, ect.) だい 「第」: Ordinal   じゃあ、また~ I'm going to split the next lesson into 3 because it's going to be really long! Until next time guys! ^-^
Kana I teach you Kana?
皆さんこんにちはー (Hello Everyone!) Sorry for the delay I got a new laptop, finally. 良さ感謝 (Thank goodness) Lets get down to business! I previously mentioned a long time ago that the first key thing to learn is Hiragana, that way Katakana would be a lot simpler. - Keep in mind that they are the exact same sounds as Hiragana the only difference is that they are used for foreign words; Ex: The English word Bus is ( バズ) Not ばず It's spelled using voiced Katakana which I will mention later along with voiced Hiragana. IMPORTANT: When learning Katakana it's best to completely forget how you would say English words in English because 10/10 in Japanese it's not said the way it would be in English. Looking at the chart above it may seem sort of intimidating at first because the letters are extremely different, more angular rather than round. But think of the Hiragana sounds and replace them with the Katakana letters. For learning Katakana, it's best to write them down by vertical sections. (Ex: - Day 1: アイウエオ ) Over and Over again For however much time your studying them each day, hour, minutes even. Until you've completely memorized them Also I realized that if I were to go over each section of the basic Katakana, it would sound like a complete repeat of the previous Hiragana section being that the sounds are the same and the only difference is the way they look. u.u But that doesn't mean you guys can't master the Kana on your own! じゃあ、また! Stay tuned for the next session! <33
